Great Metal Detecting Simulator Made by Up and Coming Developer

Ben Wiest is a 16 year old aspiring game developer from Wisconsin. Ben sure did good with this game, and I would like to see more from him. The game I am talking about is a game made by Ben called "Detector Island: A Metal Detecting Game".

(Here is a handy link): 

As I played this game there were a few aspects that I were most impressed with. For one, being able to purchase metal detector upgrades and skins with points was a great idea! Second, and this may just be a personal thing, exploring the terrain of the map was so enjoyable, especially climbing.

I got to speak with Ben, and learned some about him and his motivation for the game, this is what I learned:

"I started working on Detector Island after coming up with the idea to make a metal detecting game, with it being snowy outside and not being able to go detecting in real life, as it’s a fun pass time of mine.

Some highlights of this game are it's music and art style.

Somebody messaged me with some free games to try out, and i'm pumped.

I am really glad somebody understood that this blog is a great place to promote their games. I recently had received an email from Gabriel Bakker about some games he had developed.

The games were great as far as I am concerned. The games are physics based puzzle games, and what I found really neat is that momentum is a huge aspect in the games. Here are the links:


Stay tuned for the post on the third game developed by this developer, "Balloon Ride" The game will receive a separate post as it is seemingly very unique when compared to the previously mentioned games.
